Manchester United superstar Wayne Rooney is working with the club’s foundation to provide help for kids. The player says all the funds raised from his testimonial match against his former club Everton at Old Trafford will go to the charity.
The money is understood will be used to fund a scholarship programme to cater for youths from disadvantaged areas. The funds aims at giving the children an opportunity to reach university level education. Four charities are set to benefit from the proceeds of the charity game with Manchester United Foundation being one of them.
It is believed that Manchester United might be making a bid for their former player Paul Pogba.
There are reports that Jose Mourinho has instructed the Manchester United board to try and sign the French midfielder.
Jose Mourinho has been having some lengthy discussions with Manchester United Ed Woodward, and it is believed that a great deal of these discussions has been about signing new players.
There are reports that the Portuguese manager has told Ed Woodward to get Paul Pogba whatever the cost is.
It is believed that Manchester United will be making a £100m to Juventus to test their resolve when it comes to the player. The Italian club has previously said that the French midfielder was not available for sale, but we will have to wait for their answer if Manchester United do make the offer for Paul Pogba.
Following up on the bomb scare that has delayed the last game for Manchester United this season, the club has set up an enquiry.
The "urgent" inquiry has been demanded after a dummy bomb used in a security exercise caused the Premier League match against AFC Bournemouth at Old Trafford to be postponed.
A controlled explosion was carried out on the device, which police said was accidentally left by a private firm. Greater Manchester Mayor and Police and Crime Commissioner Tony Lloyd called for a full inquiry into the "fiasco." He also told BBC Sport that United "need to apologize very, very seriously" to supporters of both clubs who were at Old Trafford.
Italian players Andrea Pirlo, Sebastian Giovinco and Mario Balotelli have been left off the preliminary list announced for Euro 2016 for Italy.
Toronto FC forward Giovinco is one of a number of noteworthy players left off the continental tournament.
The 29-year old, who has 30 goals in 45 games for TFC, was surprisingly not included in manager Antonio Conte's 30-man squad, despite his decent performance at his club.
Aside Giovinco is Balotelli, whose goals during the 2012 tournament sent Italy into the European championship final before they lost 4-0 in the final to Spain.
Louis van Gaal admitted that Manchester United are relying heavily upon Arsenal to help them finish in the top four.
The Red Devils managed to move within a point of Manchester City after a 1-0 win over Norwich City. Juan Mata scored the only goal of the game to help United closer to the top four places. Manchester City do have a game in hand, but it is probably one of their toughest matches remaining in the season. A visit to face Arsenal at the Emirates stadium awaits City and this match could potentially see United close the gap.
Manchester United are starting a rejuvenation process as Louis van Gaal is beginning to add more young players to his squad and the latest one to be signed by the Dutch coach is a 16 year old performer who was also being targeted by Arsenal and Chelsea but it was Manchester United the club that managed to secure his services.
Nishan Burkart will be making a move to Manchester United at the end of the season; Burkart is currently performing for FC Zurich but it was confirmed by his father that a deal has already taken place which is going to see the youngster making a move to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.
"We have decided to leave the club in the summer. Nishan switches to Manchester United.
The victory helped Liverpool move past Stoke City into the eighth spot. They are now only behind Southampton on goal difference. Given the form of teams like West Ham and Southampton in recent weeks, there is a real possibility of Liverpool finishing in the top six places. This would be seen as a reasonable return from manager Jurgen Klopp, who came to the club midway through the campaign. Further, their successes in the Europa League only bodes well for the German.
Media reports that Manchester United might be interested in signing RomeluLukaku. The Everton striker might be reunited with his former manager at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho. The latter sold him to Everton after criticising the striker’s ability.
When asked about the possibility of having to work with his former manager, Lukaku replied that he was younger at that time and that he was not ready to be a first-team striker. He told reporters that he did not have anything to prove to Mourinho. He believes that now he has improved and that he has enough maturity to handle pressure.
It’s been two months since Wayne Rooney made an appearance for The Red Devils following his unfortunate knee-injury in the middle of February, with his biggest fans being forced to look elsewhere for entertainment whilst he has been away.
The injury came at an inconvenient time for Rooney - just after his impressive form of scoring seven goals in nine games for Manchester United and just before England’s friendlies against Germany and Holland in which Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy had a chance to make a positive impression on England boss Roy Hodgson.
Former France coach Raymond Domenech says that he does not expect Manchester City to even come close to beating Paris St Germain in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
The two teams have been pitched against each other for the first time in European football history. City are second favourites going into the game since they have little experience of the latter stages of this competition.
This is the first time that they have reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League. Supporters of the club, though, think that they will be able to make a major impact due to the presence of world-class players like Sergio Aguero and Yaya Touré.
